AVOID these low cost Hang On UVs, Lift Tube UVs, and small self powered UVs often peddled by those in the aquarium industry that give the industry a “black eye”.
About the only only reasonably effective submersible UV Sterilizer is the AAP CUP Series 9 & 13 Watt, along with a few other exact duplicates that include adequate pre-filtration, a low pressure HO UV lamp, and the correct flow rate.
Even then these should only be considered an economy UV Sterilizer for those on a budget and desiring simplicity (these still cost more than the non level 1 sterilization models previously noted).
